Entry Process

Entries will open on Monday 29th January 2018.

Entries are only available through schools. Please ask your school to contact us for an entry form using the email address below.  Entries will close at 17:00 on Friday 23rd March.  Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so early entry is advised.

Places are limited to 2 boys and 2 girls from each school year group, allowing 24 pupils per school for the individual races. Should you wish to bring more pupils, a reserve list is in operation.

Schools may enter 1 relay team each, and request additional team places on a reserve list. Athletes in the relay team can be those from the individual races, or athletes travelling specifically for the relay.  It is possible for S1-3 boys and girls to ‘race up’ the age categories within the mixed team relay race.  This means for example that an S1-3 girl can take the place of the S4-6 girl.  It is not possible though to ‘race down’.
